We are Flying into Sacramento on Sat. 7-14-18 around 11:30am PDT and then driving into Lake Tahoe.
We are from the deep swamps of South Louisiana and are hoping to experience nice walking/hiking trails, nice waterfalls, mountains and beautiful sunsets. We have no preference or clue on if we want to or will hit LT on the north or south end before bedding down on that first night. I am just thinking that we might experience some beautiful sunset colors over the lake if we are on the East side of the lake but, that does not have to be on day or evening one.
What would be the best suggested routes to take from Sac. into LT? Are there suggested hiking trails that we can take from your suggested routes to be able to see and experience waterfalls and views other than just those that might be seen from the highway views?
Would anyone provide feedback on visiting Yosemite as part of our drive in from Sac. To LT? Is it worth it or possible? If so, places to stay over night?
Suggestions on things to do, parasailing, ziplines, hiking etc..., places to eat, places to drink, fun nightlife in and around LT and or Reno. Any cabin rentals on the lake???
